Those who have seen the video songs and trailer of the film Valliyum Thetti Pulliyum Thetti, must have felt that there are hints of the film handling a subject related to cinema and theatres. In certain sequences, we could see the cutouts of actor Mammootty and his films.
We don't know whether Kunchacko Boban is portraying the character of a Mammootty fan. We hope so. Let us take 4 instances from Malayalam cinema when actors played the role of other actor's fans.
The film must be the first to feature in this list. Rasikan, had Dileep playing the role of a die-hard Mohanlal fan. It also had actor Abi doing the role of a Mammootty fan. The fan fights that happen have been shown in a funny manner in this film. But, it has to be said that the film couldn't do complete justice to the interesting plot that the film had.
One Way Ticket
In this film, Prithviraj did the role of Kunjaappu, who is the President of a Mammootty fans association. The film also had Mammootty appearing as himself, in 2-3 scenes of the film.
This one is quite different from the other two films in this list. This film directed by Bhadran had Prithviraj playing the role of a Rajnikanth fan who calls himself Style Raj and follows the style of Rajnikanth.
Vamanapuram Bus Route
This film had Mohanlal playing the role of an avid MGR fan. The film even had another version of yesteryear classic song 'Rajavin Paarvai..'
